Câu trả lời mẫu cho câu hỏi: On what occasions can feeling proud of yourself lead to negative effects?
First of all, I think this could lead to adverse effects when one has to work in a team or collaborate with others this way or that ’cause pride creates an inflated image of yourself and makes people feel and act superior to others. Plus, feeling proud of their abilities and achievements makes people arrogant and self-centered as well as encourages aggressive behavior, which may lead to conflicts with their team members. Secondly, feeling proud takes its toll on people when they have to learn a new skill or make an important decision, especially when it’s not acceptable to make a mistake. The thing is people who are proud of themselves tend to see life as full of happiness and possibilities, thanks to their increased sense of self-worth. Because of this, they sometimes underestimate the difficulty of a task or they may overlook risks and threats. They think that whatever happens, they will be able to deal with that (which is not always the case) so they simply don’t acknowledge the necessity for thorough preparation for certain situations. And this leads to mistakes that could otherwise have been avoided.
